There will be two quizzes and two exams during the semester. The dates of these are documented in the class schedule. There will be no impromptu (‘pop’) quizzes or exams.
Exams are hands-on technical exercises completed in a fixed amount of time. The instructor will provide references that the student may use during the exam. Exams are open book / open notes. Exams are conducted in class, and you must use a workstation in the classroom to complete the exam. No other electronic device is to be used for the exams and/or quizzes.
Quizzes are closed book, closed notes, paper-based assessments given in class. Students are expected to memorize basic command syntax and write short portions of code by hand.
Make-up exams/quizzes will not be given. Exceptions are reserved for documented hospitalization or other extreme circumstances. If an exception is made, students may find the content of the make-up exam or quiz to be more difficult than the original. It is, therefore, to the student’s advantage to show up for the exam or quiz at the scheduled time and take it with the rest of the class.
